Groupon’s Guide to Co. Galway
Replete with ancient vestiges and natural beauties, Co. Galway allures travellers to delve in the vastness and variety of its landscape. It mixes the mildness of the coastal area with the roughness of the landlocked territory in a setting which is home to Ireland’s largest lake, Lough Corrib.
Steeped between the Na Beanna Beola, which is home to the highest peak in the country (Benbaun), Sliabh Echtghe and the coastal region, highlights such as the late medieval Dunguaire and Aughnanure castles, the derelict but now highly popular Glengowla Mines and the 6th-century Clonfert Cathedral reminisce of the county’s past. The puzzling rock formations of the Burren and the Cliffs of Moher add up, but globetrotters should also consider visiting the Inchagoill Island and the Aran Islands in order to get a complete view of the county’s historical and natural assets.
